If you have paid attention to the types of vehicles present in lineups announced for the coming year by car manufacturing giants, then you must have noticed a 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander. All of them seem to be focusing more on crossovers and SUVs rather than sedans or pickup trucks. Mitsubishi unveiled its lineup for the coming year as well recently, which featured an updated version of one of its most prominent products that are the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander. The Mitsubishi Outlander despite its demand is still not considered as strong as its counterparts.
However, to gain a better understanding of the vehicle, we must first understand the inner workings of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
2017 Mitsubishi Outlander – Engine Specs:
Like many of Mitsubishi’s current lineup models, the Outlander has also been installed with a 2.4-liter engine with four-cylinders, SOHC 16 valves, and inline-4. Apart from this, it has an aluminum block and head and a port fuel injection. The engine is powered by a continuously variable transmission or CVT and can provide a 166 hp, with a torque of 162 lb. ft. The fuel economy of the Outlander proved better in real life than on paper; with a fuel economy of 24 mpg in the city, and 29 mpg if you are driving on the highway. There will probably be an engine of 3.0-liter that will generate 224 hp and 2015 lb-ft.
Apart from this, the car can accelerate to a speed of 60 mph from 0 mph in 9.3 seconds, which many analysts believe is very slow. This is due to the car being dynamically challenged because of the modest power supplied and the CVT.
